I ran my pressure washer with lake water for 15 minutes and now it does not hold pressure. Has pressure on first pull of trigger and then is low?

this indicates a blockage in the wand nozzle or jet
the bad "o" ring may be the cause of the blockage or it may not be allowing the regulator to operate properly

Faucet whistles

According to "

This is most likely debris in the aerator, filter screen or check valve in the hand sprayer of the faucet. Try removing the hand sprayer and checking the filter screen at the end of the hose. The try removing the check valve to ensure it is clear of debris. It is the yellow ring with the white plastic flap in the middle. You can simply push in on the white flap and hook the yellow ring with a cork screw. Then pull it straight out. You may want to cover the drain with a dish cloth while doing this to keep small parts from being lost.

You want to know if you can fix a sudden low volume /pressure delivery problem on an American Standard model AS4205100 H7, one hole / single lever with pullout spray And is it fixable by owner?
Yes and maybe!

All plumbing systems are plauged with debrie buildup. Every time you turn on a faucet the water starts moving and will bring bits of debrie up from the water main or well. Most are small and will pass through to be caught by the screen in the aireator. Sometimes a relatively large piece comes along and dosen't make it through to the screen. It is stuck in the body of the valve.
Fixing takes a little mechanical ability.
First, turn off the water to the faucet in question. Then carefully disasemble paying close attention to the order of disasembly so you can reverse the order when putting back together. As each part is removed inspect it for that troublesome bit. I find that a little bit of wire or a paper clip is helpfull. Carefully reasemble. If the volume is still low then you missed finding that bit. Try again or call in a local pro.

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.

  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.

  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.

  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.

  5. Reconnect supply line.

  6. Turn on angle stop and test

  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

No pressure build up from pump

looks like this is a small triplex pump.ensure the pump is acually turning over with the power unit and the love joy coupler is working properly and there is no stripped out key ways ect. was the hose jumping before the loss in presure? this could indicate a washed out in the intake or dischage valve. or debris hung up there in. check the pressure relief valve/unloader valve for proper function may be the pressurised water stream from the hose is by passing .repair /replace as required.

Any time you run out of water when the machine is operating, you will need to prime the machine again through the wand not the brew head. Turn the knob on the left and then turn the machine on. The pump should get quite after a few seconds and water should come through the wand. If it doesn't you need to turn the machine off. Get a asperator bulb or you can use a turkey baster. Fill with water and stick on the end of the tube going to the pump . Turn the machine back on ( the knob should still be open), and squeeze the bulb to force water into the line. If the pump changes tone, turn the machine off. Remove the bulb and put the tube back into the tank . Try the machine again.

On the front of the door .bottom right hand corner there is a small amount of water coming out.when in use.

sounds like the seal is not sealing properly. check to see if there is any debris along the seal -- or any cracks in the rubber seal.

Water leaks from the door of countertop model on

My older model had cheap plastic type rivets around the window. Of course they broke and water leaked out the window. I took the door apart and put in a new gasket the siliconed the heck out of it!
Put dishwasher on a counter or floor and put a nice thick phonebook under neath the opened door for support. Carefully replace window with gasket and a bead of silicone. Put enough weight on top to press it down and seal it. Leave for 24-48 hrs. I've replaced the window 3 times and this fix has lasted 2 years now. total cost about $10 and a little effort. make sure you use heat tolerant silicone.

Top wand does not spin

You may have a water volume problem.

The water fill sequence on most washers is timed. Insufficient water at the bottom of the washer will cause the pump to cavitate.
Ensure water is filling to just under the heating element.

You can fix this by isolating the water and electricity then remove the fill solenoid. Inside the solenoid is a top hat filter screen. This screen captures sedement.

Once the sedement was removed on my washer the wands turned

My machine also had a check valve on the bottom near the back of the machine that was blocked.The valve needs to work freely in order for the pump to build pressure. The check valve can be removed from the top by turning the assembly counter clock wise.

This could be a couple of things.

  1. First remove the aerator from the wand and make sure you have plenty of flow with it off.
  2. If there is flow clean or replace the aerator.
  3. Remove the wand and look between the hose connection and the wand there should be a screen between them. Remove the screen and clean or replace.
  4. Make sure hose is kinking under the sink.
